The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is poised to be released next year for the 2019 model year, and that means we expect to see plenty of the truck as it undergoes testing in various conditions.
The camouflage tricksters once again try their hardest to make the Silverado look more F-150 esque, with camo splitting the front headlights like the Ford, but the squared-off wheel wells and LED lights tip General Motors’ hand.
Other than these early spy shots, we’re in the dark on what the 2019 Silverado will officially bring to the table. However, extensive use of aluminum is all but a given, with reports stating the next-generation of full-size pickups from GM may lose up to 600 pounds. It’s also a safe bet we’ll see the GM-Ford, co-developed 10-speed automatic transmission, too.
As for engines, GM reportedly has a slew of new, DOHC small-block V8s in the works, so we may possibly see this program influence the next-generation trucks. However, all that is currently an unconfirmed rumor. The possibility of a V6 turbo diesel is also in the cards since GM has left Ford and Ram to that market for the time being.
We’ll continue to keep a look out for any strain of next-gen Silverado news as it prepares for launch sometime next year. We also expect GMC to show up with its all-new 2019 GMC Sierra.
